Basic Training Course in Systematic Curriculum Development. Course One: Background to Curriculum Development in Africa.
Matiru, Barbara, Ed.; Sachsenmeier, Peter, Ed.
The subjects treated in this course on the background of curriculum development in Africa are: (1) the historical development of educational thought and practice in Africa since the emergence of the African independence movements; (2) the factors that influenced African educational development since 1969; (3) current issues involved in planning for quantitative expansion and improvement in education, and measures for insuring the relevance of education; (4) national educational philosophies and implementation of programs; (5) national educational objectives; and (6) the role of regional, subregional, and international cooperation, and the implications for educational policy, management, and implementation. Discussions of topics such as major political and educational conferences, and the search for alternatives to formal schooling are given as background for eight self-tests, in which the student is asked to comment on or extrapolate from the readings.
